Gravers are a girls best friend
Gravers really are a godsend, but they can be a bit tricky to get used to, especially if you don’t even know how to hold them correctly. I hope this short video helps you get to grips with that.
GRS high speed steel – quick change flat graver – size 40 – Rio Grande #118204, $11.95
The flat graver is fabulous for creating bright cuts around the inside edges of bezels as well as crisping up corners perfectly. I like to purchase the quick change gravers from GRS as they’re the perfect size for most hands and require much less modification than traditional gravers. I’ll still use them with a regular wooden handle however, simply because they’re a lot cheaper than the quick change handles. The #40 flat (Rio Grande code is above) – is the flat graver I use most often and the graver we use in all our bezel setting classes.
